is his mouth rotting?
hello! i bought a cc starfish a couple of weeks ago and he was doing fine. i prepared to have him by adding supplements to the tank a couple of weeks before and waited till the tank was perfect.
my issue is as i come home from school i see one of his sides is deflated and he is looking weak. i pick him up and a minute later he is big and buldgy again. i was also struck with a wave of panick when i noticed a rotting piece of what looks like soft tissue skin hanging out of his mouth. i thought it was just food but it is still there. i believe that is his mouth that is rotting away. from what have asked others, they ask what it eats, i say three pieces of raw table shrimp morning,noon,night.they say he is underfed but i ask for your opinion.
